Sun says JK Rowling article did not glorify domestic abuse
LONDON The Sun newspaper said Friday it did not intend to glorify domestic violence by giving a platform to Harry Potter author J.K. Rowlings ex-husband just days after she revealed she had been a victim of domestic abuse. It also said it had a long history of campaigning against domestic violence. It was certainly not our intention to enable or glorify domestic abuse, our intention was to expose a perpetrators total lack of remorse.'' The article and the headline sparked outrage among campaigners who have long pushed the media to exercise care in reporting on domestic violence. Domestic abuse charity Refuge described the front-page story as being both irresponsible and disappointing.
